Robert did an excellent job in handling my case and could not have asked for better representation. He was very professional in his approach and would highly recommend him. Thank You!

Bobby did a fantastic job handling handling our son's legal problems. There were a number of misdemeanor offenses in a short period of time. It was all very confusing, but Bobby explained everything simply and clearly. He made sure that we understood what was happening, and he was very patient answering all of our questions. Bobby is a great calming factor in a tough situation.
We were doubly pleased once we saw Bobby in the courtroom. He has an excellent rapport with the judges and prosecuting attorneys, which is essential to make things happen. He also spoke definitively and clearly when presenting our son's case to the judge, especially when compared to some of the other lawyers.
I am very happy that Bobby represented our son. He helped us sympathetically through a trying time. Most importantly, he was able to work with the judges and prosecutors in order to reduce or dismiss all of our son's charges. Bobby Walton is an excellent advocate for his clients!!

Bobby is a very well-known, respected, and excellent attorney. He is extremely intelligent and knows everything there is to know regarding the law.
He is known for his success in suppressing evidence which was clearly shown with my situation. For example, he knew all of specifics in how police officials should handle certain sobriety tests along with the arrest of an OVI which led to removing material evidence from my case. Because of this, Bobby was able to dismiss my OVI charges which seemed near impossible up against my BAC levels.
Bobby is not only a great attorney but a great person. In all of our conversations, I could tell he actually listened to me and cared about my well-being, making sure I was ok. He sees the good in people and wants to learn about you. He genuinely wants to help you because he knows the impact these cases can have on someone's life. We all make mistakes in life and Bobby understands that.
If you are looking for an attorney, I would highly recommend Mr. Walton. Many people in the area respect him which can get you very far.
I am naive when it comes to the cost of attorneys for my situation specifically (OVI). Bobby, himself, will tell you that he is expensive and that you can find an attorney who is cheaper. However, I would say that "this expense" is WELL worth it.
